Hello. Welcome to the second edition of Haikulandia – a series of poems constructed by people we met at Rifflandia Music Fest.
Dan Howse – Illvis Freshly and New Groovement
I ran into Dan, who had pretty much no voice, but was still happy to recite poetry. Quietly. This is Dan’s haiku:
It brings people together
And music is cool
Justine Soleil – Cool kid
Justine strolled onto the scene in a denim onesie, and made me feel under-dressed. This is Justine’s haiku:
Haikus are sexy
But sometimes they don’t make sense.
Phil Lyons – Illvis Freshly
I ran into Phil at Lucky Bar during The Gaff’s set. I could hardly hear him, I think this is what he said. This is Phil’s haiku:
Betty and Kora
Double high kicks I do
License to be cool.
Jesus Estevez – Illvis Freshly
Jesus telepathically transmitted his poem to me one night. This is Jesus’s haiku:
My name is Jesus
More outgoing then pay phone calls
Attitude like B+
Stay tuned for more from Haikulandia….and the 5-7-5.
